KENOSHA – First District U.S. Congressional Candidate Robert Zerban released the following statement today about Paul Ryan’s decision to run for re-election. 

“Representative Paul Ryan is out of touch with the First District. Wisconsin families deserve a voice in Congress who will put them first instead of engineering a plan to gut Medicare and sell out our families to Washington special interests like Big Oil.

 "Just two days ago, Newt Gingrich called Paul Ryan’s budget plan to end Medicare “radical” and “right-wing social engineering.” If Newt Gingrich thinks Ryan's plan is too radical, it's outrageous to think that this is the right track for Wisconsin. 

"As someone who has run a successful small business, I know how to create jobs and grow a strong local economy. We need to focus on how to drive Wisconsin forward and not set back our families and seniors by ending Medicare."
